It's not as nice as some of the coops here but it works


DD 7 named the coop Adobo (Filipino chicken dish)
the duck coop is underneath
DD named the duck coop Balut (Filipino duck egg snack)

Total cost $50.00



The playhouse was oldest DDs when she was 2 she's 15 now. Since none of the kids play in it anymore we decided to turn it into a chicken coop (the chickens ate all our grass) We now have grass growing SLOW



I will cover the duck coop with Solexx this weekend
I have 1 inch hardware cloth buried 18 inches.



The wood on the front door is temporary I am putting Solexx on it this weekend
I have hardware clothe buried @ 18 inches here too



Duck door is 2 feet high x 3 1/2 feet wide





I used an old table top for the door



The dog kennel we got for free

We put in 2 roost inside the coop with 2x4 laying around
the nesting box in an old toy box



Feeder & waterer

Chicken nipple waterer so far the ducks are the only ones using it
The feeder is a trigger feeder that I made. So far the ducks are the only ones that know how to use it

Run 6x30
If anyone wants a Honda Odysee Go Cart its all yours!!! I have a generator back there too that's too heavy for me to move alone.

Very nice. How many ducks do you have? My daughter wants us to get ducks next. Are they more work than the chickens?

We have 2 muscovy ducks. I think thereabout the same and there housing is less complicated than chickens. Ducks are messy !!
